Nike LeBron 9 - Watch The Throne

"This is luxury rap," announced Kanye West on the song "Otis." His collaborative album with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne, signaled its intent early on, with a lavish gilded cover provided by GIVENCHY designer Riccardo Tisci. This wasn't a mere hip hop album, this was a global event. That sense of maximalism extends to the Watch the Throne tour, which rolls into Miami's American Airlines Arena tonight, on loan from the idle Miami Heat. Since Jay-Z is hoarding the spotlight in his buddy LeBron James' house, it's only fair that the rapper return the favor by allowing King James to borrow Watch the Throne's regal design for use on a pair of his signature shoes. The Nike LeBron 9 "Watch the Throne" is luxury footwear, done up in black with intricate album artwork showing up at the lining and laces. Decorative accents include a gleaming gold Swoosh and an ornate, spiky lace jewel seemingly ripped right off the album cover. Slip these on, lace them up and you'll feel more than worthy of a throne.
